I love games that allow you to free-roam and this list has by far my favorite open world video games to date.

All of these open world games I've played and everyone has something different to offer.

There's some of the greatest, some of the hidden and a few games you may have forgotten about, either way I did my best to add what I thought was the best open worlds in 2016.

If you have any amazing open world games you'd like to add to the list please use the comments down below.

    METAL GEAR SOLID V, THE WITCHER 3, and DRAGON AGE: INQUISITION... All beautiful open world games that should be mentioned within top 15, but I def like how original the list was, I didn't expect many of the choices. THUMBS UP. And... Skyrim only 10-15 hours..., I just started playing remastered for the first time and I'm just scratching the surface at around 20. I don't even play MGSV a whole lot, (not good at the game mechanics, lol) but still recognize it's mastercrafting. You sound like you would like the SOULS GAMES and BLOODBORNE. Not open world but by far my favorite games ever.

  • chapasproject

  • air

    really good video, i loved your enthusiasm, subscribed

  • Papa Wyatt

    My favourite setting in a game is assassins creed unity. The French Revolution is a brilliant time to set it in, the architect is amazing and also the civil unrest makes you feel like you're there.

  • xCobi

    Mad Max is the best Game for under 5€ i ever bought ... super Story and a epic World

  • Slime ‍

    mafia 2 was one of the best games i've ever played mafia 3 makes me want to kill myself

  • Sean K

    Mad Max is a very very good game -- if you like GTA, Far Cry, etc. and especially if you like the movies (Mad Max, The Road Warrior, etc). Very entertaining game.

  • Carol Hewitt

    I think I have an addiction to mad maxI counted my hours on all of my saves and I have 3627 hoursHelp me.....

  • gcvgckjtfhtcokjkhlhygbfcc7f gg,gj nmnvgnv,

    gta 5 and saints row I would say are my favourite

  • d carr

    i actually agree fallout 4 had a great open world, pity all you could do was shoot at it

  • freakin mohawk

    you sound ridiculously similar to Kol Michaelson from The Originals

  • Mark Williams

    This is the best game list ever! Thank you

  • Jake brihendde

    So glad that he put Minecraft to the list 😊

  • Muhammed Elferis

    great video my friend congratulations

  • Jacob Locklear

    Mad max dying light great games right here

  • 12D3

    Mad Max was absolutely insane. Loved every minute of it.

  • Damon Manning

    Red dead redemption 2 should be called "Redder and Deader than the last redemption"

  • Alex Johnson

    I love mad max its a good game

  • Omhuk 75

    Mad max was great. The witcher 3 and MGS V should be in the list as well.

  • Roman Galich

    Really surprised you don't know much about the Assassin's Creed series, the newest Origins and then Syndicate are just absolutely amaaaazing.

  • Chris Gikas

    far cry 2 in africa....amazing game...a little old but it was awesome..

  • Jack Nea Nea

    Dude keep going I like you man 😂😂 I'm not gay but you know what I mean !! #thebest

  • Youths Playground

    metal gear solid V is the best

  • Bouncy BaconGod

    I don't personally agree with all of the choices, but this guy is really funny.

  • Mr Sickless

    Cool list but i personally wouldn't count Rust, Mincraft, Frost. As a open world game it kinda counts as a survival. (Before you hate on this comment i clearly said PERSONALLY)

  • Sauron Ikov

    here's what i think the top 10 should be1: ark survival evolved2: 7 days to die3: Minecraft4: Far Cry 45: The Isle6: DayZ7: Hurt World8: stranded deep9: BorderLands Pre- Sequel 10: Rust

  • Cyrus the Virus

    People can say anything about Ubisoft but what's undeniable is the fact that the Far Cry series have such very complete, brutal and interesting titles like FC3 with it's outstanding story and badass and amazing game mechanics, same goes to the 4th one which is a total improvement of the previous one, best open world games are those two for me and nothing else.

  • Stone2D3D

    You missed showing the best:- The Crew- Watchdogs- Watchdogs 2- The Division- Fuel- Midnight club LA- Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain- Far Cry 3- Far Cry 4

  • Dagwood Dog

    GTA is for baby boys, Fallout is for when you're ready to become a man

  • Stealth_ Gamer

    Watch Dogs , Watch Dogs 2 , Final Fantasy 15 , Horizon Zero Dawn , Mass Effect Andromeda , Ghost recon wildlands , Batman Arkham Knight , Batman Arkham Origins , Spiderman are best open world in my opinion .............. These are the most played games by 2016/17 and have a ................. MIND BLOWING GRAPHICS !!!!!!!!!! . I think you should add to your list too ;D

  • Tiger Boom

    i think the list is good i mean it... it actually good... and i am not saying you should have added what others told but jsut cause i want here some of mine list....ohm infamous 2 yeah i still play it... great game awesome story just love it also the whole idea of you creating your level with any thing you want... is crazy

  • Smith Smitherson

    Who ever played Fallout 4 to the end and chose to join the Brotherhood of Steel, raise your text hands!

  • Sub Zero

    Don't forget infamous second son and final fantasy xv.

  • Dimitris Bibicos

  • 1967 Shelby

    Dying light no one plays that anymore but I love it.

    5:24 minecraft for about 5 sec hahah best game ever doesnt need more time...

  • kane

    gta is crap.i hate it.

  • Euro44 GamingPal99

    Saints row 3 and 4 was the worst freemode games ever created.

  • Nathaniel Cabrera

    I loved assassin's Creed but Ubisoft fucked up after assassin's Creed rouge

  • king mark

    Dying like is sooooooo nf lit

  • Dr. Pheel

    Mad max is fun, the story is nice, but the map is hardly noteworthy. It's like, ubisoft quality open world. I mean yes it's detailed and littered with stuff to do, but it's just that - stuff to do. Not interesting stuff. Other than doing missions it's not all that interesting. Don't get me wrong, I love the game, but in my personal opinion it's just not "best open world" quality

  • Lefty For Dead

    HUGE map on ghost recon wildlands!!!! Play it!

  • psypartyholland

    gothic 2 and 3 and now elex are the winners for me..not totally problem free but a storyline and atmosphere with the npc and caracters are exelent..

  • CypherSlayer


  • ST7A Bad Karma

    Red Dead Redemption zombies... me and my bros had a blast.
